The Park Hotels manage first hotel outside India: Sahara Palace Marrakech

Leading Indian hotel group, The Park Hotels, have entered into management services and marketing agreement with Sahara Palace Marrakech.


This property opened under the new management effective Sept 2015. Sahara Palace Marrakech, featuring splendorous Moorish, Indian and Venetian architecture, is home to 89 guest rooms, 15 luxurious suites, and four exclusive Riads. All rooms and suites enjoy stunning views across the Atlas Mountains, the Palmeraie desert or the properties’ tranquil pool and gardens. Each part of the property has been meticulously crafted with a vivid blend of captivating Moroccan and exotic Indian themes. Priya Paul, Chairperson of The Park Hotels said of the acquisition, “We are delighted to be managing this beautiful palace hotel in Morocco. Along with the strong Moroccan accents throughout the property, there are a number of Indian design influences, making the hotel a great fit for us as hoteliers from the subcontinent.” Vijay Dewan, Managing Director of The Park Hotels said, “Sahara Palace Marrakech is our first international hotel.

We are excited about managing this beautiful and serene royal palace. It is indeed an exotic escape for business & leisure travelers with secluded retreat and Moroccan sunshine.” Dining: There are four restaurant offerings within the property: Rumi Restaurant, Mantra Restaurant, Bombay Veranda and Menzeh Restaurant. Rumi offers diners a true taste of Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine, using the best local ingredients. The burgundy coloured walls are hand polished and wax plastered using the craft Tadlekt, a traditional lime plaster. Set in a vibrant open kitchen, Mantra offers guests Indian and Asian cuisine through a journey of traditional spices. The Bombay Veranda is a unique outside fine dining brassiere, with a Moroccan touch. Menzeh is a more relaxed approach to dining, located by the pool, overlooking the landscaped gardens.
